KISS Founders to Open Rock'n'Roll Casino & Resort in Oklahoma

One of the biggest bands in the world, KISS, are bringing their rock'n'roll to Oklahoma by means of a new casino and resort. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, both founding members of the popular band, have partnered with Kaw Nation to open the first Rock & Brews Casino Resort as an expansion of the music artist's Rock & Brews restaurant chain.

Simmons and Stanley showed their excitement after their announcement and groundbreaking of the new casino and resort. Stanley said, "We're going to shake things up, we're going to do it our way, we're going to do it in a way that you'll be proud of."

The location of the new casino and resort is next to I-35, 55 miles south of Wichita, or a 40-minute drive from Kansas Star Casino, to which it is expected to directly compete with.

"For our first casino resort and hotel to be here is an honor for us," Stanley said. "We'll be able to pull people in from Tulsa, we'll be able to pull people in from Wichita, from Oklahoma City, from the surrounding areas, and because Rock & Brews is such a hot up-and-coming phenomenon ... we'll keep pulling in people from all over the state and all over the country."

The casino, as planned by Kaw Nation, will be built on a 186,000 square foot property and will boast 1,500 slot machines, conference center, events center, restaurants, and a bingo hall. Once completed, it will be the largest in northern Oklahoma and will be comparable to the size of Kansas Star Casino.

While the interior details of the casino are still being worked out, the illustration of the building plans appears to have swimming pools and a KISS logo running on the façade of the building. It is still unclear how much the casino will cost. "The bottom line is, taxes are going to be paid, there's going to be income for everybody and jobs created," said Simmons.

They must have the money Smile plus connections.
And if they appear now and then in the casino, they will be flooding in order to see them.
They have many fans all over the world.It seems a good move to me Smile

What a great idea. A Rock themed casino. No doubt there will be loads of KSS memorabilia on offer as well and no doubts loads of people,e dressed in rock get ups and themed games to play. Sounds like a great idea and one worth visiting. Hopefully one of the poker clients will check out a promo at the place.

This should be a very good money making venture and i think that they will have many customers. KISS have a very big following and, if they put in regular appearances, the crowds will come flooding in

Imagine you being you, touring as a member of the world most famous hard rock attraction and circus for 40 years and the money you've been saved up after all these years is... going to build another indian casino.
Pretty sure that is not what rock and roll is about.

I certainly do not love this rock band but it is certainly a great idea to attract new players for which this group is the idols ... for a long time I have not heard about the new introductions in the casino of this kind ... Good luck to everyone who plays there ... roknrol

I doubt they are going to use all their life savings for this casino.
This would have been a very dumb move.
Only one of them Simmons, according to google has a net worth of 300 millions $ Smile
Along with the other member are close to half a billion.

They might have hundreds of millions but as with most rich guys it's probably 99% of the money tied up in prtfolios, investments, $hit they don't really need to fund but doing it anyway.
They are quite old, I'd rather spend my money at this time of my life than keep gathering more for no reason just to have my kids fight over it when I die...

I don't really have anything against their music.. I mean - I don't like it, personally - but whatever.

But I find Gene Simmons to be a really gross human being. A bad example of our species.

I am a huge rock and metal fan, (ex. AC/DC, Audioslave, Guns N' Roses, Judas Priest, Megadeth Metallica, Mötley Crüe, Motörhead, Papa Roach, ZZ Top, etc); however, I really don't know many songs recorded by Kiss. Oh, wait, I do love their song "Beth."
